2011 TOUR DE VINEYARDS

Come join us for a great way to celebrate the start of fall, by joining this bicycle tour of Colorado’s Wine Country. The 25-mile ride through the vineyards of the Western Slope (on paved roads with a few hills) gives cyclists an opportunity to pass by the area’s wineries, as well as acres of fruit orchards. The event is located in the Grand Valley and is held prior to the Colorado Mountain Winefest “Festival in the Park” with over 50 of the state’s winery’s available for your tasting. Congratulations to our Women riders who make up over 60% of our participants!!!

FREE SHOWERS WILL BE AVAILABLE at the pool in the park (you bring towels, soap, etc). The “Festival in the Park” (Riverbend Park) is only 5 blocks (less than 1 mile) from the start/finish and a shuttle bus will be available from Peach Bowl Park.
